LJC Festive Un-Party!
Come one, come all and join us for the LJC festive un-party. It will be on the 29th January at the Village Hall in Shoreditch. The refreshments are being sponsored by our good friends Atlassian and Hazelcast.
This will be something a little different to our usual LJC events and will include a combination of open mic style presentations, lightning talks and a few surprises.
We are also going to be getting in the party mood with something a bit new in the shape of blind-ignite talks… If you are unfamiliar with the concept - in ignite talks each speaker gets 5 minutes, and must use 20 slides with each slide advancing automatically after 15 seconds, forcing speakers to get to the point, fast. We're going to spice this up by giving the presenter little or no time to prepare for the talk. Meaning that a senior speaker will be tasked with giving an ignite presentation that they haven't seen before.
We'll also be having an update on what's been happening with Adopt-a-JSR, the LJC Book club and all the other things that go on within the LJC.
This event is being held at Shoreditch Village Hall, 33 Hoxton Square, London, N1 6NN - http://shoreditchworks.com/shoreditch-village-hall

Hazelcast (http://www.hazelcast.com/) is the leading open source in-memory data grid. By having multiple nodes (JVM) form a cluster, data is evenly distributed among the nodes. This allows for horizontal scalability both in terms of available storage space and processing power. Backups are also distributed in a similar fashion to other nodes, based on configuration, thereby protecting against single node failure. Visit us at www.hazelcast.com (http://www.hazelcast.com/)
